Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Smoke is immediately obvious, and there are some hints of sweet vanilla and perhaps basil.

Palate: A tad oily and rich, a lovely subtle almond develops with a slightly salty quality that tempers the heavy smoke really well.

Finish: Really lovely, it's not too oily and a twinge of black pepper spice is present as the woody oak pushes through. Combined with the smoke and the sweeter notes, the balance is very impressive.

Overall: Mature, complex and beautifully presented - good value-for-money, too!

Ballechin 13 Year Old 2004 (cask 5) - Straight From The Cask Reviews

I want one!

I like a whisky that is not quite like any other, yet reminds one of many others - in this case a shirred Laphroig an old sherried Bowmore, and a Springbank or two. A bit auster and dry but all the more interesting for that.

I was given a dram at the Soho Whisky Club tonight by the manager George Keeble. He said "You won;t be disappointed." Reminds me actually of a wine casked Bowmore I bought from Duncan Taylor. It certainly is winey, but an interesting and Entertaining balancing act between the wine and the the mineraly smoke. I would rather like a bottle! Lots going on, and layers develop beneath the two main sparring partners including hints of Tropical from and salted porridge. It's a bit like a red currant jam, not too sugared, rolled in a wrap made of smoked parchment.
